Sandi Toksvig & Noel Fielding join GBBO

Just when you had sworn never to watch Channel 4’s bastardised version of The Great British Bake Off they only went and announced Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding as the hosts with Prue Leith taking over from Mary Berry.

Sandi said after the announcement that: “It is an extraordinary honour to part of this national treasure of a show” while The Mighty Boosh’s Noel Fielding said that GBBO is “one of his favourite shows” and hosting it will be “a dream come true”.

Channel 4’s Jay Hunt said judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood had “huge amounts of expertise” and that the new hosts would bring “plenty of fun and warmth…It’s just the sort of innovative line-up audiences expect from Channel 4”

Oh alright, we probably will tune in then…
